•Access to Software
All MSPM students, including the new spring 2015 students, have access to DreamSpark where they can download key Microsoft software (Office excluded). Instructions on downloading software from DreamSpark are available on the blog (uses same password as bio books). If you are accessing DreamSpark for the first time, you will need to register/create an account using your @gwmail.gwu.edu email address. If you run into any issues, contact Sami Nagi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students may also download VM Fusion, helpful if using a Mac. As a reminder, Microsoft does not offer a Mac version of Project. VM Fusion simulates a Windows environment to run Project.
Those interested in purchasing other software packages at an educational discount, visit JourneyEd. Additional free software downloads are available from the GW Division of IT and through the Virtual Computer Lab. Your professors will tell you what software is required in each course.
• Religious Observances and Holidays
GW’s policy regarding accommodations for religious holidays may be found on the Office of the Provost website. This is a reminder that students must notify faculty during the first week of the semester of their intention to be absent from class on their day(s) of religious observance. We are currently in the first week of the spring 2015 semester.

Each student is required to be familiar with these requirements and regulations. If you have questions about your academic standing, schedule an advisement session with me to discuss.
